#metoo Movement: 'jhund' Producer Comes Out In Support Of Nagraj Manjule | Hindi Movie News
Filmmaker Nagraj Manjule of ‘Sairat’ fame recently grabbed limelight after his wife had accused him of harassing her, abusing and forcing her to go through abortions. And now, in the wake of the #MeToo movement, she refreshed her claims against the director. While Manjule is yet to issue a statement, the producer of his upcoming film ‘Jhund’ has come out in his defence.



According to a report in Pinkvilla, Producer Savitaraj Hiremath issued a statement which read, ‘Nagraj ji’s divorce case with his wife is personal and has, in fact, even been settled. The case stands closed as of today. However, certain sections of the media have included Nagraj ji in the “#MeToo” category and are trying to show him in poor Light. But this not true.We, at the JHUND team, are aware of the matter and are clear on the stand that first of all there seems to be no case, leave alone one that fits in the # MeToo category.Further, we have internally checked the facts from the director and others and have found no basis for such allegations.’

‘Jhund’, directed by Nagraj Manjule, stars Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role. The film is reportedly a real life story based on underprivileged children who live in slums and how the megastar’s character builds a soccer team with these kids. The film will go on floors soon and is slated to release in 2019.
